November 8: Train the Brain!

Each and every day we wake up a reset button is pushed!  Each day brings a new opportunity for enjoyment, success, and fulfillment.  One of the most helpful things we can do in this life journey is to learn the importance of, and take advantage of, the opportunity to train our brains.

Becoming a faster runner takes practice.  Becoming a power lifter takes dedication, hard work, consistency, and a lot of lifting.  Becoming an Olympic swimmer isn’t JUST a genetic gift, it is born of dedication and repetition.  Doing the same thing over and over, until we can do it faster, harder, stronger, better, more easily and more often, isn’t just for building muscles of the body.  These things work, as well, for our brains.

When DISCIPLINE is acquired and practiced in one area of our lives, discipline tends to spill over into all other areas of our lives.

What a wonderful concept!  IF WE DON’T USE IT WE LOSE IT, also applies to our brains.  Thinking the same thoughts, reading the same quotes, listening to the same interviews, speaking the same words, and completing the same actions, all rewire, reprogram, recalibrate, and train our brains.  We get better at these things with repetition and practice.

Dr Joe Dispenza has done an incredible amount of research over the years on the topic of NEUROPLASTICITY.  This concept teaches us that through thoughts alone we recreate our reality, each and every moment.  WE PERCEIVE OF AND PROJECT OUR OUTER WORLD ACCORDING TO WHAT WE THINK AND FEEL ON THE INSIDE.  The life experience we live a year from now is being created by the thoughts we think today.  Plug his name into YouTube or google, and hang on for an incredible ride!  His Ted talk is especially informative.  I LOVE his books.

What habits have you created from your daily routines?   Who EXACTLY do you want to be in 10 years?  When we decide that, and when we are clear about that, we will know what we need to do, each and every day, to reach that 10-year realization of our own, decided reality.  Life is 2 percent luck and 98 percent perspiration.

It’s time to get to work on ourselves.  What do YOU want to become?  We can become anything we want to if we are willing to work hard, be persistent, dedicated, and consistently practice what it takes to get there.  It is through consistency and repetition that true mastery is attained.

The practices of repetitious meditation, prayer, gratitude, affirmations, writing, meditations, and visualization, all contribute to the subconscious mind by reprogramming our brains to empower us to achieve greater and greater heights, and to live a more meaningful, purpose-filled, fulfilling, happy, and enjoyable existence.

Today, if I haven’t already done so, I will make an easy-to-do, consistent, habitual, routine which will benefit me and those around me.  I will remember that this process won’t happen overnight, and I will remember to enjoy the process along the way to the successes I want.  I will remember that I am a co-creator with the Universe.

Another one of the world’s leading experts on training the brain is John Assaraf.  His work has impacted my life for YEARS.  Put his name into the YouTube search engine for some top-notch content.
